We streamed a bunch of games in November on Twitch so I thought I’d write up some thoughts on each game!
Tried out the new Arcade modes (1v1 and 3v3), another great update to an already great game. Blizzard are absolutely spoiling us with these updates. It’s one of the reasons it replaced CSGO as my go-to game these days. (Surprisingly, the ‘paying to spray a tag’ update did not bring me back to CSGO).

This is pretty great for a free standalone mod (you can get it here), and I’m really impressed that there are people out there who are so dedicated they’d recreate a classic from N64 with such detail. I never really played the original much so I didn’t harbour much nostalgia for it, but it was still good fun shooting you guys in the face.
Forget Mario, if you’re in the mood for karting you know you gotta play as a cartoon cat that’s notorious for being lazy and not moving around at high speeds. I love Garfield, and I love capitalism, but damn is this game a desperate money grab (then again what Garfield game isn’t? (Well, actually Garfield: Caught in the Act was really good)).
I wouldn’t have had as much of a problem with the game if it wasn’t so obviously just a quick port of an iPhone game. I think the only change they made was ripping out the ‘BUY COIN PACKS’ menu, but still kept all the gameplay orientated around grinding coins to continue.
Alright, maybe I’m not THE SMARTEST GUY OUT THERE, I’m perhaps not even in the top 10, and this game has definitely made me aware of that possibility. 0/10
Man.. when that first trailer dropped, I watched it a dozen times. I was worried they’d continue with the modern combat style, or even do 2141 2 (lol) with that easter egg they included in that map. But I’m glad they didn’t because then we’d have Call of Duty, Titanfall, AND Battlefield all doing sci-fi. Zzzz.
Personally I was hoping it would be set in the 80s (with an in-vehicle radio with 80s hits, like they did with BF Vietnam). But WW1 is also great.
Watch me play more games, and/or watch me draw these comics by following me on Twitch! See you in the chat!
